A decent points -> money mechanic makes this reasonably compelling, but something tells me that "Hero" is being used in too generic a way, unless there's a shopping cart controller I'm missing.

I can't figure out how to make the tricks work.

ANyone figured out the "superman" feature?

use the up-left-down key for superman once airborne
use up-up-down for the handstand.

Good accompaniment to Carts of Darkness (the movie)

You have to buy the stunts before you can use them. You can get a pretty good flip after buying the two-stage rocket, too.

Well, the key commands are written on the trick themselves, so I know what they are, but how do you use them? I've tried pressing them each rapidly in succession, I've tried holding all three down at once, I've tried pressing and holding the first, pressing and holding the second, then pressing and holding the third, I've tired pressing the first two rapidly and then holding the third. None of those things seemed to result in trickery, even after I purchased them.

jacquilynne: I did it by pressing the first, then the second, then holding the third. Maybe it'll work for you if you do it a touch slower, and make sure you don't press any two of the keys at the same time?

This game is great fun - if whoever made this game develop it further with more tricks and ideas, it'd be awesome. Flying amongst the stars in a rocket-propelled shopping trolley feels fantastic.

So, what do the groupies do?

So, what do the groupies do?

I'm pretty sure they just add extra mass to the cart to help accelerate it down the hill, giving you some extra inertia for distance flights.

(And yes, I do imagine they also supply the post-landing sexual favors.)

They multiply your score with style points, as well.
